    Hi Julie

    I totally relate to that I'm feeling just the same. I feel like there is something elso wrong with me I feel so sick got no appetite or energy to even move. I'm supposed to be working but just can't and its causing me so much stress as I'm desperate for money I don't have a penny and don't get sick pay as self employed. This illness just causes so many problems

    Hey there Julie. I am so sorry you are feeling very down again.  I know just how you feel.  Thank goodness we have this site to come to.  Makes us feel less alone, and we know other people here have been through the same. 

    Depression really does take everything away from us.  I have been as low as low can be, and lost a lot because of the illness.  Somehow after all the years I have had depression I battle on.  Let me give you some hope.  I was on anti depressants for over 20 years.  I stopped them over a year ago as my doctor suggested I try to see if I could manage without.  Now I never thought I would ever do without medication, but do you know I am pleased to say I am coping.  I am a little old lady, and depression did all the things to me it is doing to you now.  But I am doing pretty well really. 

    Just want to say you will not feel the way you do now for ever.  Yes you will have ups and downs, but it will get better over time.  Honestly.

    Now you take care and battle on.  Don't let the depression win.

    Hi Julie,

    I've been there. Depressions not just feeling depressed, but confussed and cloudy too. Well was for me anyway. It will get better, gradually when you start to get better, your brain and alertness, will come back too. x
